Despite the growing impact and urgency of climate change, many waste management operators still rely on fossil fuels to power their fleets. With transportation being the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions, this presents a major challenge and opportunity for the waste management industry to go fossil-free and lower its carbon footprint. Enter Neste MY Renewable Diesel™, a sustainable drop-in fuel that reduces emissions by up to 80 percent compared to fossil diesel in the communities you serve.
Free of impurities like sulphur, oxygen and aromatic compounds, Neste MY facilitates more efficient combustion. That means longer DPF regen intervals and less vehicle downtime—even with the severe-duty, stop-and-go operations typical in waste management.
Let’s make something clear: Renewable diesel is different from biodiesel. With the same chemical properties as fossil diesel, Neste MY delivers comparable benefit and performance to your fleet—without the downside.
How Neste MY benefits the waste management industry
Easy to switch
Fully compatible with your existing diesel infrastructure, no costly overhauls, new equipment or additional investment required. Just drop in, drive off, and immediately make progress toward your sustainability goals.
Low environmental impact
Made from a mix of 10 plus different feedstocks, mainly wastes and residues and various vegetable oils, sourced from supply chain partners who meet strict sustainability standards.
Clean-burning, pure hydrocarbon fuel contributes to maintenance improvements, virtually eliminating the risk of deposits that can negatively affect filters and injectors.
Compliant with regulations
Neste MY Renewable Diesel meets the same specification as fossil diesel – ASTM D975 and EN 15940. Its lubricity provides extra protection for fuel pumps and fuel injectors.
“Since the switch to Neste MY Renewable Diesel, we have no maintenance issues. The trucks are running exceptionally well. In the past we were having to change filters often. Switching to renewable diesel has helped us save on routine maintenance costs.”
